Fox News host Megyn Kelly slammed a college administrator who apologized for her school’s “mistake in judgement” by serving Mexican food during a monthly school event.
On The Kelly File Thursday, Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade appeared with Kelly to discuss several subjects, including Stevenson College’s regret over serving Mexican fare during its ‘Intergalactic Night,’ a space-alien themed evening. The college is located in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Kilmeade explained the event takes place once a month with a different theme. “Some Hispanic students became vocal and they protested this,” Kilmeade explained, reading some of the apology letter that can be found in full here.
“I am writing today to apologize for a mistake in judgement that took place in the planning of last night’s College Night,” wrote Carolyn Golz in her letter to members of the student body. “The theme was ‘Intergalactic”’and the decor included robots and space ships with aliens.”
Unfortunately, the program planners made a poor decision when choosing to serve a Mexican food buffet during a program that included spaceships and ‘aliens,’ failing to take into account how these choices might be perceived by others.
We would never want to make a connection between individuals of Latino heritage or undocumented students and ‘aliens’ and I am so sorry that our College Night appeared to do exactly that.
As a result of this incident, I will require cultural competence training for Programs staff, in addition to implementing mechanisms for future program planning that will ensure college programs are culturally sensitive and inclusive.
“As an ally for students of color and, in particular, undocumented students, I am committed to ensuring that student life staff receive the training necessary to make sure that this type of incident does not happen again at Stevenson,” Golz continued in the letter.
But Kelly had harsh words for Golz. “You can’t make this up…with all due respect, you are a moron,” asserted Kelly. “I’m sorry but Carolyn needs some help,” Kelly added after Kilmeade lauded Stevenson’s communications department for getting back to him in an efficient manner for the story.
“For French night… they knew what to do; for Harry Potter night, they served potatoes. I’m not really sure why,” Kilmeade said.
